                        ______________________________

Genesis 2: 16 And the LORD God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; 17 but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die.” >>>>        because HIS words are powerful he had to COME, not ‘SENT’ as we were taught that He ‘Sent his Son’ yes; there is a Holy Trinity as He said, that his father sent him, and “I am the way the truth and Life… John 14:6
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me”

THIS IS THE REASON FOR HIS COMING!

The Birth of Jesus was not a ‘staged’ event; it was Predestined by The Creator, to be our Redeemer.

Isaiah 9: 8
Written 700+ Years before Jesus was born…

For unto us a child is Born, to us a Son is given,
and the government will be on His shoulders.
And He will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace,
(New international Version © 2010) 

Romans 5:9
Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him!
Romans 5:8-10 (in Context) Romans 5 (Whole Chapter) 

Ephesians 1:7
In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace
Ephesians 1:6-8 (in Context) Ephesians 1 (Whole Chapter)

Colossians 1:20
and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.
Colossians 1:19-21 (in Context) Colossians 1 (Whole Chapter) 

Let us focus on the following principles...

One: That our Lord is the same and HE never changes, His message is the same, “You must be born again”…. John 3: 7  as He said…You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You must be born again.’ (These are the Words of Jesus)

Two: That when we come to the Cross and receives Jesus, we need to know that it is by HIS GRACE that we are saved… Ephesians 2: 8 Forit is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—… The Key word here is FAITH, and the 2nd is the Gift of God…

Three: To accept Jesus...First we have to come to Jesus and in Faith 

Pray... Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner, and I believe and accept that You died for my sins, and by Your Blood that was shed at Calvary, I am Saved by Your Grace. Lord Jesus let Your Holy Spirit come into my heart and change me and as by Your Divine Resurrection You are The Sovereign God, I receive You Lord Jesus as my Savior and Lord, I accept Your Priceless Gift of Salvation and trusting You Lord Jesus, and know that it is only by Your Grace that I am saved, I pray in Your Holy name Lord Jesus as my Redeemer... Amen.

We thank you for coming to our Lord and Savior, who is our Redeemer. We wish to thank you for accepting Jesus. Jesus our Sovereign God will guide you. and we would like to invite you to consider enrolling in a Bible Study Group, go to the LINK Page and select www.bsfinternational.org and find a BSF group and enroll to be a member.  

The Priceless Gift...

What is inside this Gift? An everlasting Give of HIS GRACE: ” 

Ephesians 2:8  For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—

Romans 5

New International Version (NIV)

Peace and Hope

 1 Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. 3 Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.

 6 You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly.7 Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. 8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

 9 Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him! 10 For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life! 11 Not only is this so, but we also boast in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.

Death Through Adam, Life Through Christ

 12 Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all people, because all sinned—

 13 To be sure, sin was in the world before the law was given, but sin is not charged against anyone’s account where there is no law. 14 Nevertheless, death reigned from the time of Adam to the time of Moses, even over those who did not sin by breaking a command, as did Adam, who is a pattern of the one to come.

 15 But the gift is not like the trespass. For if the many died by the trespass of the one man, how much more did God’s grace and the gift that came by the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ, overflow to the many! 16 Nor can the gift of God be compared with the result of one man’s sin: The judgment followed one sin and brought condemnation, but the gift followed many trespasses and brought justification. 17 For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ!

 18 Consequently, just as one trespass resulted in condemnation for all people, so also one righteous act resulted in justification and life for all people. 19 For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man the many will be made righteous.

 20 The law was brought in so that the trespass might increase. But where sin increased, grace increased all the more, 21 so that, just as sin reigned in death, so also grace might reign through righteousness to bring eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

We will not use any “Glib’ talk... like Jesus told me so, or God told me so.  We are moved by HIS Holy Spirit, knowing that there is Power in His Holy Spirit.

Our blessed Jesus, as God, is omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent.


 


Luke 11

New International Version (NIV)

Jesus’ Teaching on Prayer

11 One day Jesus was praying  in a certain place. When he finished, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord,  teach us to pray, just as John taught his disciples.”

He said to them, “When you pray, say:

“‘Father,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom  come.
Give us each day our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins,
    for we also forgive everyone who sins against us.  
And lead us not into temptation. ’”

Then Jesus said to them, “Suppose you have a friend, and you go to him at midnight and say, ‘Friend, lend me three loaves of bread; a friend of mine on a journey has come to me, and I have no food to offer him.’ And suppose the one inside answers, ‘Don’t bother me. The door is already locked, and my children and I are in bed. I can’t get up and give you anything.’ I tell you, even though he will not get up and give you the bread because of friendship, yet because of your shameless audacity  he will surely get up and give you as much as you need.

“So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you;  seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 10 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.





Think on this…

The Bible is not a Yellow Page, come to Jesus now before it’s too late.

Just like not servicing your car and when it won’t start, you have to call Triple A for a jump start; in life we have the same requirement to maintain our health to avoid an emergency.

Life is full on uncertainty and many certainties (Givens) these are:

  • What is Life, a life span of 70, 80, 90 or even a hundred years?.
  • Where do we go from here?
  • What’s out there, after we leave this world?
  • Do we just accept the final words of Dust to Dust?

Remember the story told by Jesus of the rich man that lived an affluent life, dressed in purple robe and had sumptuous meals, and the beggar Lazarus that laid at the gate of this rich man… his dog would come and lick the sores of the beggar and, guess what? They both died and the rich man went to Hell and Lazarus went to be in Glory…

We can say “I have time enough to think on the above” this could be 100% correct as well as it could be so wrong.  No the Sky is not falling, and global warming is not going to kill us, nor is it likely that a plane will fall out the sky and land on me. But many possibilities exist, as no one knows what tomorrow will be.

Many of the residents in Japan did not expect to have their world turned upside down by the Tsunami, but events do happen and things can be irreversible.

No one reporting to work that morning on September 11 to the World Trace Center towers that morning expected the catastrophic attack, not to be a fear monger, but we read and hear about so many random actions that changed the lives of many and even ended many innocent bystanders’ lives.  We may say we live in a relatively crime free community, but today’s school campuses, hospitals, restaurants, malls are all fair game for such events.

It is the 100 year anniversary of the sinking of the TITANIC. No one on board expected less than an enjoyable Trans-Atlantic trip on this brand new super liner, the first of its kind. We all know the answer to this, may our Lord grant the souls of those His Peace

As told to me by a family member… ‘ I want you to know I bought insurance, I accepted the Lord Jesus as my savior’, this was told to me a week before he went home to be with His Lord and Savior.

On this website we discussed the difference between Insurance and Assurance. Only our Lord Jesus gives Assurance… You may say why do I need Assurance?  Because Jesus came to give us His Assurance of Life-Everlasting in a Place of Splendor full of Joy, Joy is mentioned in the Holy Bible 244 times in the New International Version and 155 times in the King James Version.

We know that our Lord Jesus Paid the price for our Redemption and by His Grace we are Saved… The Good News of His Salvation by His Divine Resurrection that conquered death is real and it if freely offered to all.  Just like the prudent relative that said I have bought Insurance and accepted Jesus, right now you can come to Jesus in the privacy of your room, or anywhere you are, without missing a moment of having His Assurance of being counted among His believers and be able to say.. ”I Am Saved by the Grace of God and not of my own… as Ephesians 2: 8 & 9 said: For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast.

Pray…

Lord Jesus The CHRIST, Son of our Father and our Creator, who is GOD in One of Your Holy Trinity, as our Eternal GOD, I  come to You to seek you today Lord and to come to the Cross where you Paid it ALL… and by Your divine Resurrection, You triumphed over Death, and declared that “IT IS FINISHED”… Lord by your Grace I can come and receive Your Great Salvation today knowing that You are at the Right Hand of our Father and that no one can come to the father unless through You Lord Jesus, as our Intercessor and our Redeemer, I dedicate my life and accept You Lord Jesus as my Redeemer and by Your divine Resurrection, You paid for my sin, today, I give You the Glory.  I  Pray in Your name Lord JESUS and praise You and to You be the Power and the Glory in Your Matchless name Lord Jesus Amen

Do we sometimes feel that we are in a rat race? How can we get off this threadmill? 
You have come to the right place, find Peace by trusting Jesus!

What must I do to receive this “PRICELESS GIFT
It is the gift of God

The Scriptures said, As many that received HIM….. John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believein him shall not perish but have eternal life. 

700 Years before the Birth of Jesus our Messiah, the Prophet Isaiah said in  Isaiah 43:10 You are my witnesses,” declares the LORD, “and my servant whom I have chosen, so that you may know and believe me and understand that I am he. Before me no god was formed, nor will there be one after me. And:

But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.

John 14  Jesus Comforts His Disciples, and US ALSO…

    1 “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God believe also in me. 2 My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. 4 You know the way to the place where I am going.”

* Reference Philippians 1:21   The Bible says ‘for to me to live is Christ and die is gain’; there is a gaining about death. For the believer, the brutal fact of death has been conquered by the resurrection of Jesus Christ. For the person who has turned from sin and has received Christ as Lord and Savior, death is not the end. For the believer there is hope beyond the grave. There is a future life.

More Than Conquerors * Read Romans 8: More  (THIS IS WHERE HE SAID HE KNEW YOU)

 28And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him,[j] who have been called according to his purpose. 29  For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. 30And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.

To Receive His Holy Spirit today, we have this opportunity right now… Because of HIS Blessed Assurance, If you come to Christ today the Angels will celebrate in heaven today.

Romans 8: 28  And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose

(Today you are all here for one Reason, to be given this Opportunity to become JOINT HEIR with Jesus) because in…

Verse 29 For those (You and me)  God foreknew he also predestined (YOU) to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he (JESUS) might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. 

Verse 30 And those he predestined, (you and me) he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.

Verse 31 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?

Our blessed Jesus, as God, is omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent.
Jesus is our High Priest..
